Corinthian Resolve Story Of Marion Bermuda Race

From the Introduction:

“Since 0230 that morning, Karina had been enveloped in thick fog. The sky was completely obscured. Jack's “Naviguesser” Mike couldn't take any sights. He did have a thermometer aboard, an essential piece of equipment for sailors traversing the Gulf Stream. Karina didn't carry the convenient hard-wired digital type used today. Instead he had a thermometer that he dipped in a bucket of seawater hoisted aboard for the purpose. The latest measurement showed that the ocean water temperature was beginning to rise. This was bad. Simultaneously rising wind speed and temperature are a combination Bermuda-bound sailors don't like to see. It means heavy wind would combine with current, unpredictable squalls, and often tumultuous heavy seas in the Gulf Stream. If the wind blew strongly counter to the current, waves could build to a frightening size.

A veteran of two Marion-Bermuda races, Mark J. Gabrielson is a noted maritime historian. He is the author of Deer Isle's Undefeated America's Cup Crews. He teaches a history of navigation course at Harvard University and sails his classic yawl Lyra throughout coastal New England.
